The flavor was ok, just didn't live up to my expectations. I made the quiche as written (no substitutions or additions), and I thought it was a little bland. When I read the recipe, I thought it would be very rich, but the quiche didn't come out that way.
Oh this was so good, I used regular onion in place of the green as I did not have any green at the time, I also added in chopped fresh garlic when frying the onions in place of the powder, and of coarse cayenne pepper was another addition, sprinkled the top with Parmesan cheese instead of paprika, thanks for sharing BakinB!
I can't add any more than the previous reviewers. Great quiche and low carb, too! A hit with our family! This is going into my Best of 2009 cookbook! The first entry! Thanks, BakinBaby! Made for Vegetarian Recipe Swap #6.
